Monday Short Cuts

The Gipper: “Our friends in the other party will never forgive us for our success, and are doing everything in their power to rewrite history.”

Upright: “In the ideal situation, the mother should not believe that the baby is her enemy and should not be looking to terminate the baby. … We’ve allowed the purveyors of the vision to make mothers think that that baby is their enemy and that they have a right to kill it. Can you see how perverted that line of thinking is?” —Ben Carson

For the record: “Lois Lerner’s cynical, overt politicization of the Internal Revenue Service, and the fact that she and other IRS leaders misled investigators, Congress, and the public about the extent of the IRS’s political shenanigans, undermines the legitimacy of the federal government. DOJ won’t lift a pinky against a friend of the Obama administration. This is banana-republic stuff.” —Kevin Williamson

Fine journalism: “Sources confirm that Joe Biden will enter the 2016 presidential race.” —Sunday tweet by AOL.com — four days after he had already bowed out

Protecting one of their own: “[The attack in Benghazi] is a tragedy, and it should be investigated. … But there’s no crime here on [Clinton’s] part. … There’s no evidence of a crime. There is evidence of inconsistency.” —Bob Woodward

Non Compos Mentis: “It has not been easy for me. And, you know, I started off in Brooklyn. My father gave me a small loan of $1 million. I came into Manhattan, and I had to pay him back and pay him back with interest.” —Donald Trump

And last… “Poor Hillary. She was forced to sit there testifying about the exact length of time Americans in Benghazi waited for help that never came.” —Twitter satirist @weknowwhatsbest
